If you’re reading this chances are you already know about the upcoming sequel to Valve’s Portal game and likely you are also a fan of its creepy puzzling storyline and complex hints hidden throughout. If not well I suggest you familiarize yourself with everything Portal 1 here’s a excerpt from the Wikipedia page (Warning may give away storyline)
"Portal 2 takes place hundreds of years after the first game. GLaDOS remains alive, as well as Portal’s protagonist, Chell; retroactively patched, the ending for the first game shows Chell being dragged away by an unseen figure with a robotic voice, where she is put in stasis over the years. The game will take place in the Aperture Science Labs, untouched by human hands but overrun by decay and nature. The player will interact with many of the numerous personality cores (which were seen activating in the post-credits scene from Portal), which have become active in the intervening years, using the automated systems of Aperture Science to create their own microcosms within the facility. The cores themselves are unable to move save through overhead rail systems. Chell is awoken by one of these, Wheatley, who has become concerned for the state of decay and seeks to correct it. Wheatley acts as the player’s guide during the tutorial and initial stages. Soon, the two are introduced to GLaDOS, who is quick to accuse Chell of murdering her years ago. Two new characters will be introduced for the two player cooperative mode, which will have its own unique plot and setting. These two yet-to-be-named characters include a modified turret gun and a personality core; both units are bipedal and equipped with their own portal guns. Though once part of the networked facility, they have become separate entities, and are treated to similar abuse by GLaDOS as Chell is, being put through a series of complicated test chambers."

Valve loves to be mysterious especially when it come to Portal dropping hints and Easter eggs that often lead to interesting little hints at future events to further hype about Portal 2 Valve released a patch for Portal on March 5, 2010,the patch was an additional achievement, "Transmission Received", where you had to move around the in-game radios to get a code which eventually led to a BBS phone number that when showed a bunch of ASCII images relating to Portal and pieces of documents for Aperture Science. A second patch released 2 days later changed the original ending a bit modifying the main character’s (Chell) ending. After the official release the hints continued Gabe Newell ended his acceptance speech a for the pioneer award by flashing a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) apparently from the GLaDOS operating system.
As a Portal fan I can honestly say I cannot wait to get my hands on this.
